The Process of Custom Hardware Development
- Initial Design: Client will need to provide either drawings, samples, CAD files, or technical specifications to start the development process.
- Consultation: These specs are sent to our development team for review and advisement on construction methods, price, minimum requirement, and mold fees.
- 3D Plastic Samples: Our factory will provide a 3D sketch that we use to print a plastic sample here in Massachusetts for client approval (takes 1-2 days to print the plastic).
- Metal Samples: Once the client approves the plastic sample, we will begin the brass or other metal sampling process, which takes about 2 weeks to deliver.
- Production: When the metal sample is approved and any molds are made, production begins, which takes approximately 6 weeks.
- Delivery: Hardware is packed and delivered anywhere in the world with your choice of ocean or air. As always you can ship ocean to our Massachusetts warehouse at no cost to you!
Our 71+ years of experience gives us the ability to advise on construction methods, provide alternative design ideas, and utilize a wealth of manufacturing knowledge to develop your hardware. We take you every step of the way from design to delivery!
